Bug description:

   * On trusty, we met this issue, you can't turn on/off bluetooth, it
  affected the other OEM project which needed by Lenovo, HP and Dell.

  [Test Case]

   * open the unity-control-center, and select 'Bluetooth', try to turn
  on/off in top checkbox.

  I am on ThinkPad T61 with Ubuntu 13.10 installed. I disabled bluetooth
  on startup by adding:

  "echo disable > /proc/acpi/ibm/bluetooth"

  to /etc/rc.local. When I open gnome-control-center -> Bluetooth and
  click on the "ON/OFF" switch button, it switches on for a fraction of
  a second and then switches back to off. Below are dmesg lines
  corresponding to this event:

  [   94.028110] usb 3-1: new full-speed USB device number 5 using uhci_hcd
  [   94.194320] usb 3-1: New USB device found, idVendor=0a5c, idProduct=2110
  [   94.194325] usb 3-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
  [   94.194328] usb 3-1: Product: BCM2045B
  [   94.194330] usb 3-1: Manufacturer: Broadcom Corp
  [   94.388169] usb 3-1: USB disconnect, device number 5

  The workaround is to type "turn connectivity on/off" combination of my
  keyboard (FN+F5) -- then both wireless and bluetooth go off, and when
  I type it again, bluetooth comes back ON.

  cherry picked into trusty, so no potential regression.
